Rachel Ostrander Poetry Den

 

“Save Me O Lord”

 

But it was I that he called “My Love”

Why O why did I leave my first love;

Is my flesh truly that strong?

 

Shall my flesh or spirit win

The battle within?

How shall I tame the demon

I was born into?

 

Oh Lord, save me form my inequities

Save me form the demon that

Is gripping my soul.

 

For your life is my life

Into your hands I commit my spirit;

Redeem me, O Lord God of truth.

 

I have fallen, and I beg you

To save me, I have sinned

Against you; forgive me O Lord God!

 

 Take away the sin, guilt, pain and

Suffering, take it far from my eyes

Let me see it no more!

 

I will serve you for the rest

Of my life; I will give you praise

Whether for better or worse.

 

Everything I make, do and say

Will always be for your

Glory, Lord God.

Amen
